Korea’s Voice heard across Europe

I Can See Your Voice has also been greenlit by the BBC in the UK

RTL in Germany and RTL4 in the Netherlands have become the latest international broadcasters to commission local versions of a South Korean singing competition format.

CJ ENM’s music show I Can See Your Voice is a South Korean show format that first aired in February 2015. The gameshow features panels and contestants who must figure out whether the mystery singer is a good singer or a bad singer, judging by rounds of lip-sync challenges, hidden clues and true-or-false questions.

The German version will be produced by Tresor TV, part of Keshet International, and will launch later this year.

Also launching later in 2020, the Dutch version will be produced by Warner Bros International Television Production for RTL4.

The commissions follow the news earlier this week that BBC1 had greenlit an 8×60’ UK version to be produced by Fremantle-owned prodcos Naked and Thames Productions.

Earlier this year, US broadcast network Fox ordered a local version of the show, having already enjoyed success with fellow South Korean format King of Masked Singer.

Axel Kuehn, Tresor TV’s MD, said: “I Can See Your Voice is one of our favourite international formats. With the growing interest in Korean formats and in close cooperation with our partners at CJ ENM, we were able to sell the format to RTL. We believe it can be highly successful in Germany and will become the next Korean format hit globally.”
